Lind WA
Hello Fellow Alumni,
We are excited to announce the details for the upcoming 2019 Alumni Banquet on Saturday, May 4th, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. at the Lind High School gymnasium. 
The Banquet will be catered by Hungry Hound Barbecue and we have included the menu for your reference.
Deadline for reservations is Monday, April 15th. Limited reservations can be made at the door, but are not guaranteed. Alumni dues are $10.00 for each Alumnus. Please ensure your dues are paid before attending the dinner. Dinner reservation is $22.50.  We look forward to your attendance and welcome your support.

Julie Holland will be this year's Master of Ceremonies, with Mike Ellis as our Guest Speaker and Janel Rieve will give the Benediction. In addition to the banquet meal, our agenda includes the introduction of our honored classes along with the other attending graduates as well as the awarding of the 2019 scholarships. All Alumni are invited to attend the banquet with a spouse or a guest. In addition, past or present teachers are also welcome. If you know a teacher who would like to attend, please share this information with them, or contact us and we can send them the information.
The Ritzville Journal will be in the gym before the banquet to take pictures of the honored classes for the newspaper. They will begin at 5:30 p.m. in the gym. Please be sure to let your classmates know and pick up a photo order sheet before the shoot.
If you are unable to attend the banquet, annual dues are still very much appreciated. The $10 dues helps to defray the cost of mailings, dinners for 2019 scholarship recipients, supplies for the banquet, etc. The banquet is a great social opportunity to catch up with those you may not have seen since graduating. It truly is a great time to reconnect---the more that attend the merrier. We encourage you to reach out to your former classmates and ask them to join in the fun. Let's make the 2019 Lind Alumni Banquet a night to remember.
We will again be presenting the Virginia Moorman Moore Scholarship along with the Alumni Scholarship. It is a pleasure to present scholarships to young graduates. If you wish to continue supporting the Alumni scholarship fund, please include it on your reservation form or mail your donation to the Lind Alumni Association, PO Box 444, Lind, WA 99341-0444. All scholarships will remain with students that reside in the Lind school district.
We do save a tidy sum by sending emails to those for whom we have provided current addresses. Please let us know when you change your email address by emailing us at Also, if you have changed your postal address PLEASE update that as well.

We have added a Facebook page for our Lind Alumni and welcome photos of days gone by, the present and the future.  Your updates are most welcomed! A big thank you to you all for keeping the Lind Alumni Alive!
Honored classes this year will be: 1959, 1969, 1979, 1989, 1994, 1999, 2009 and 2019 Lind School District resident seniors.
We will need volunteer Board members along with any other helpers in setting the dinner up on the 3rd and 4th .    If our annual banquet is to continue these positions are important and we do welcome your help. Please volunteer by checking the bottom of your reservation form.  Please do not let being remote hinder your decision - today we can SKYPE our meetings and include you in the fun.  Thank you so much!
